The Toffees are currently in 19th place with 15 points in the Premier League, after losing to West Ham over the weekend. Lampard replaced Rafa Benitez on January 31 last year.

There has been talks of Sean Dyche or Nuno Espirito Santo taking over the role, as Everton attempt to avoid relegation after a near miss last season.

Lampard started as a Derby County boss, where he reached the Championship play-off final. Later on, he returned to Chelsea where despite a transfer ban and the loss of top player Eden Hazard, he led the Blues to the FA Cup final and a top-four finish.

He was sacked in his second year, after the Londoners registered a string of sub-par showings.

If the latest reports are any indication, Lampard will once again find himself out in the cold before long.
